Road Raisins: A Ragtime Oddity

Road Raisins: A Ragtime Oddity
Promo still from The Grapes of Wrath (1940)

—Andy Senior (July 20, 1994)

Road Raisins—Oh, how I love ’em!
Road Raisins—I gotta have ’em!
I pick ’em up in the road—
I’m not quite sure what they are;
They kinda look like a toad
That’s been run over by a car.

Road Raisins—You just can’t beat ’em!
Road Raisins—Can’t do without ’em!
If I could make ’em from scratch
I sure would make me a batch
That would be more than I’d catch
By far;
I love those Road Raisins—
But I’m not quite sure what they are.

Road Raisins—make life worth living!
Road Raisins—they make my heart sing!
Each day I pick a big bunch—
I find ’em right near my door;
After I eat ’em for lunch
I go and pick a big bunch more.

Road Raisins—They’re extra crispy!
Road Raisins—I guess they’re risk free!
If I just knew how to bake
I sure would bake me a cake
With my whole Road Raisin take
To date;
I love those Road Raisins—
Don’t know what they are—but they’re great!
